What in the world is going on? What is happening? 2017 is already
shaping up to be a year when the world is turned upside down, spun around and
jettisoned into deep space.
The mainstream media, the "lamestream media", or call them
whatever you like is losing their grip on reality. The reason why this is
happening is simply because they are losing their grip on the narrative and
they can't stand it.
For those of us in the gold and silver industry, we are way ahead
of the curve. We have been smeared by the financial media for decades.
GATA has been targeted as conspiracy
theorist, even though just about everything they have said has been proven true
over the course of time, as have many other "theories" by prominent
names in the industry.
The tin foil hats have been taken off, thrown in the dustbin, and
are never going back on. The mainstream media is losing the culture and
information war, and 2017 is the year that it goes into overdrive.
Hilariously, they are the ones defeating themselves by and large.
They continue to come out with fake news story after fake news story
based on TRUE conspiracy theories that are easily debunked and dismissed
by the mass public who simply won't swallow their lies anymore.
Yet, are they backing down? Are they pulling back, reassessing
their tactics and saying, "Wait a minute, this isn't working, more and more
people are waking up and changing ranks, less and less people are listening to and reading us!" No.
No, they certainly are not, as seen with the Wall Street
over PewDiePie, the most famous and followed YouTuber in the world. This mess is now being dubbed #PewDieGate.
On the face, they are targeting him over some crude jokes they
took out of context, which I have to agree, likely took things too far and were in bad taste. But what you need to understand is the real, true motive behind
their actions, which is now blowing up magnificently in their faces as the
YouTube community rallies behind Felix Kjellberg and defends him almost
PewDiePie simply isn't taking this lying down and
is destroying their fake news narrative they are putting out and it is having a
monstrous side effect. It is "red pilling" (waking up) his gargantuan audience.
They are seeing through the lies and not buying it.
The real reason why they are attacking him has nothing to do with
virtue, which I believe is important, but has everything to do with the power
he holds. His influence is far reaching,
even more so than ANYONE at the Wall Street Journal. Felix receives tens of
millions of views per week, and he is just a dude with a webcam.
You have to note - to the MSM, this is unacceptable and is just
another example of how the old "guardians" of the news are dying off
and becoming extinct. The new, alternative media is here, and they can't stand
it. It cuts into their influence, their control, and more importantly their
As a veteran of the precious metals industry, and therefore a
seasoned pro in the
the MSM emits towards our industry, I say the following: too bad, so sad, your
time has passed.
